I take your palm within mine.
And lay upon your hand.
This tiny little flower.
Hoping you will understand.

This little bloom is fragile.
Just as fragile as our love.
I ask you please donít crush it.
Is this small request enough?

Let your love shine upon it.
Donít water it with my tears.
Donít let it wither and die.
With care it will last for years.

It may change with time my love.
It may not seem the same.
But it will always be ours
even if love were not its name.

Donít let it lay forgotten.
As you busy yourself with life.
Donít ignore the fragile flower
or that you now have a wife.

Hold each gently in your heart.
be gentle with your hand.
I give this fragile love to you
hoping you will understand.

Emotions can be very fragile. Love can grow deeper and stronger if not crushed. You said it all!

Very well said Lucie. That which breaths in the life can crush it just as fast.
